Doing 4k editing on
MSI B350 Tomahawk Arctic mini Itx board. All white build with blue glow.
Corsair watercooled R1800x
Gigabyte Geforce 1080
Corsair Air 240 case, white.
USB Audio interfaces:
Rockville RCM03 mic.
Sources are Gopro 4k, 4k phone and 4k Pana and homemade sax, uke, drum.
Editing: Davinci, Gimp, Reaper.
32gb Ram are plenty.
Basic version of Davinci is free. Ordered me the full version and is included with the BMP Cine soon,
Davinci grabs as many cores as you are willing to allocate and this is absolutely great. Preview, editing and rendering happens on the graphic card. Means your PC wont bog down. Davinci is easier to use than Premiere.
Rendering 4k is fast. Very fast. A slight performance hit with 8k but not much.
There is no need for a Threadripper at the moment. Its a nice to have thing. I sure would but my setup is about as fast in real world usage as the bigger chip at about half the cost.
First time in my life that I have a PC that can crunch and stay nimble and I will upgrade to last and fastest chip at the end of the Ryzen cycle. Thx AMD.
